The famous Austrian motorcycle maker, KTM has announced a recall affecting the 2017 390 Duke and 125 Duke Models in Europe. The recall has been ordered due to an issue with the LED headlamp in both the models. The issue involves the LED headlight to get randomly restart and if happened at night, may land the rider in a great danger, especially in India where road lights are not always functional. The manufacturer is offering a free software update that resolves the issue of the random restart of the LED headlight.  


KTM Europe has issued a statement stating, “During the internal endurance testing, KTM experienced some cases of sporadic reboots of the LED headlight. As this may lead to potentially dangerous riding situations, the software of the headlight needs to be updated as soon as possible.” The malfunctioning Automatic ON Headlamp (AHO) feature may prove to be very dangerous while riding at night. 

The Indian subsidiary of the European motorcycle giant has not ordered an official statement yet but on the flip side, KTM India service centers are already reaching out to the customers for a free 390 Duke software update that resolves the headlight issue. Stay tuned as we get you more updates on the same.
